Hello to all of our kind supporters, we have a couple of new updates Centre Marembo would like to share with you:

Highlighting the ongoing importance on GBV prevention

 While gender-based violence (GBV) still persists in the present day, Rwanda is still finding different innovative methods to prevent harmful actions that violates human rights of girls and women. In order to educate the public on this matter and spread awareness, various institutions and organizations organise ways to let the public hear the testimonies of the GBV victims.

  On 9th of June 2022, two young mothers who are GBV victims were invited to the Imanzi Radio station to share their testimonies on the GBV in the families; Executive Director of Centre Marembo, Nicolette Nsabimana, and Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Teddy Ruyenzi, were also present during the radio broadcast.

  The aim of this broadcast is to bring voice to of the children, young mothers and GBV victims and their stories, and emphasize the importance on a proactive action or method in GBV prevention. 

During the interview, Teddy expresses towards the public on the fight against GBV:

"We need concerted efforts by the families in order to eradicate the violence in our communities.”

"....We need to strengthen community awareness, go down to the grassroots, reach to all groups; women, men, couples, children, local leaders and mentors to build a collective bond.’’

 We would like to the many radio listeners who listened throughout this important broadcast.

 

 

An important note:

 

  Rwanda is experiencing an increase in the local market price, as a response to the global substantial economic instability and stagflation; it has affected majority of various items and services, such as fuel, school fees, food and other basic need items.Combining with the slow economic rate, high unemployment rate and low supply rate, these factors are adding more pressure onto the marginalised and vulnerable groups, having a negative effect on the daily lives of children, girls and teen mothers.

  To give an example, fuel costs 1.42 USD per litre/ 5.38 USD per gallon (for gasoline); for diesel, the fuel costs 1.46 USD per litre/ 5.53 USD per gallon. Another is a 20 litre cooking oil, which last month or so costs around 40,000 RWFs (about 38 USD); the same cooking oil is now increase by about 20%, costing almost 50,000 RWFs (about 50 USD). Since the beginning of this year, many goods have experienced a substantial increase in prices over a period of 5-6 months.
